Franco Manca pizza is art

Franco is missing but his spirit is not

Franco Manca means Franco is missing. For now he is. But he will be back. During these uncertain times, we can still channel Franco's spirit. The art on our walls has always been a big part of our experience. Our pizzerias feature the work of the late Enzo Apicella and Paul Davis, an artist and the creator of our Franco Manca logo. When we reopen our pizzerias we need your help with some new artwork for our walls.

How to enter the competition

  • 1. Get creative.

    Draw, paint, or create a piece of art which represents Franco Manca. Tell the story of how we make our sourdough, how we make our pizzas in the traditional Neapolitan style, and where we get our seasonal ingredients from. Take a look at our local artist blog below for inspiration.

  • 2. Scan your work into a computer, or take a photo.

    We will choose 5 winners from entries, based on the work which we feel best represents us.
